While Ant and Dec returned to our screens on Christmas Day with a festive Limitless Win, they're kicking off the New Year with a full season of the ITV1 quiz show.


The series, which sees contestants climb an endless money ladder by answering trivia questions, continues this weekend with season 2, picking back up with comedians Jimmy Carr and Katherine Ryan who we left mid-game at the end of the Christmas special.

Fans can expect season 2 to introduce a few new features, including a new Take Two with Ant and Dec lifeline, which resulted in a few bickers between the two hosts.

"We only get 30 seconds to lock in an answer so we can’t worry about it too much. We had to quickly come up with an answer, agree with each other and lock it in," Ant said ahead of season 2.

"It forces you into disagreements, this show. It forces you to bicker amongst each other. But we agreed once we'd locked it in."

When will Ant and Dec's Limitless Win return?

Ant and Dec's Limitless Win returned on Christmas Day with a festive special, however the full second season kicks off properly on Saturday 7th January at 8:30pm on ITV1.

The quiz show was recommissioned back in February after the first season aired last January and became ITV's highest-rated non-scripted show premiere since The Masked Singer.

Ant and Dec's Limitless win rules explained

Limitless Win sees contestants in teams answering everyday questions in order to bag cash prizes. The major difference with this show is that there is no limit to the cash prize, meaning contestants could walk aways with hundreds of thousands of pounds if they answer questions correctly.

The Limitless Win rules are pretty simple as all of the answers are numerical – so there can only be ONE answer.

If contestants get the answer spot on, they bank the cash. However, if they decide to continue up the ladder and answer another question incorrectly, they’ll lose their existing jackpot.

Contestants have a number of lives, and they don't lose too many when answering incorrectly, they can try again, but if they're too far out and have no more lives, it's game over!

In season 2, a brand new feature was introduced, allowing contestants to ask Ant and Dec for their answer to a question if they land on the Take Two lifeline.
